Bhumika Saini, in this lesson, has exquisitely explained everything which is related to Volcanoes. Then with the concept of plate tectonics, she elucidates the formation of volcanoes. Then she shifts her focus in explaining the global distribution of volcanoes. On the basis of Periodicity, intensity, and composition, how the volcanoes are classified are ​explained in-depth.

one of the best teacher of math
mam, try to include diagrams for volcano concept
sorry madam but illustrations can be used for better understanding
Need More Points about Volcanoes and their formations. And for Every point mention you have to substantiate why it was.. Need improvement in lesson. Tnq

  3. Volcanoes A volcano is a rupture on the crust of Earth that allows hot lava, volcanic ash, and gases to escape from a magma chamber below the surface . Eruptions can cause lateral blasts, lava flows, hot ash flows, mudslides, avalanches, falling ash and floods.

  5. Plate tectonics and volcanoes . Plate tectonics provides the most logical explanation of volcanoes and earthquakes There are 3 types of plate boundaries along which earthquake occurs 1.Convergent . 2 Divergent 3 Transform

  10. Global Distribution of Volcanoes . Along divergent plate boundaries, such as Oceanic Ridges . Along converging plate boundaries where subduction is occurring. And, in areas called "hot spots" that are usually located in the interior of plates, away from the plate margins.


  11. World Map of Volcanoes


  12. Composite Cones . Composite Cone volcanoes are steep-sided made of alternate layers of ash and lava. Often the lava cools to create a plug in the vent, meaning that a huge explosion is needed to remove it. The best example is Mt. St. Helens. Subsiduary Cone Volcano made of alternating layers of ash and lava Steep sided


  13. Geysers, Fumaroles and Hot Springs .A fumarole is vent where gases, either from a magm a body at depth or steam from heated groundwater, emerges at the surface of the Earth Hot springs or thermal springs are areas where hot water comes to the surface of the Earth. .Cool groundwater moves downward and is heated by a body of magma or hot rock. . Minerals dissolved in the high temperature water are often precipitated when the water cools at the surface.


  14. INTRUSIVE AND EXTRUSIVE LANDFORMS Volcanic cones Craters, caldera Lava domes, plains Extrusive Batholith Laccolith Phacolith Lopolith Sill, dykes Volcanic plugs Intrusive


  15. Intrusive landforms Intrusion of Magma in sedimentary rocks Sills (Horizontal) Dyke (Vertical) Laccolith - magma which could not come out Lopolith - saucer-shaped Phacolith - shape like waves Batholith - intrusive granitic rock e Lopolith - saucer-shaped
